It’s crazy to think that just two weeks ago I was sharing my journey to Africa with you, and now many of us are under "stay at home" orders as we face one of the most widespread pandemics that humanity has ever seen.
While you’re probably overwhelmed with news and updates regarding COVID-19, I wanted to touch on a few things related to your travel – whether you currently have travel booked with us, another agent, or booked on your own.
Sorry it's a little long - there is a lot to go through. Thank you for reading me :)
Here are a few things to consider if you have travel plans currently booked.
Throughout this evolving situation, most all suppliers (airlines, resorts, car rentals, tours, etc) have remained consistent in assisting those who are departing first.
Anyone who is slated to depart after early May are asked to remain patient and wait for the industry to catch up on those departing earlier than you.
There are two benefits to this:
Many personnel are trying to do their job from home amidst the same health concerns the entire world is facing, the only difference is their workload has increased dramatically and they are attempting to complete their duties without access to the same systems they had in the office.
Remember this is a GLOBAL crisis, so trillions of people are in need of assistance at the same time, in addition to you. Unfortunately, this circumstance is unlike anything we have ever seen, and it will take some time, patience and understanding as everyone is adapting to the changes and massive workload. The one consistency across the travel industry is the need to assist those who in order of travel dates - so those who are supposed to be traveling soon can receive help first.
At this time, the people scheduled to travel between now and mid-May may be eligible for credits, and possibly refunds. However, if you are traveling further out than that, the odds are you will still fall under the standard cancellation policies and would need to assume all penalties associated with canceling. This is why it could be in your best interest to hang tight and wait closer to your travel dates and see what the suppliers are offering at that time. Many companies are posting their updated terms on their website, so you can go online to visit your travel suppliers website to view what their most current terms are.
I had some clients asking about cancelling weeks ago and had they done, so they would have lost thousands in payments already made, but as they waited and their travel dates got closer, I was able to secure credits and even refunds, depending on the situation and supplier.
I can honestly say that the industry has been doing a wonderful job of being there for our clients and all they’re asking for is a little patience so they have time to help everyone around the globe.
If you've booked your travel through a travel advisor, you're in luck - we are here to help you navigate terms and conditions, waivers, cancellation policies and be a liaison between you and the different vendors that are coordinated to create your travel package.
Many of you have a number of different components to your packages and my job is to help sort those out - whether it's getting train tickets in Europe refunded, submitting documentation and filling out forms for refunds, or supplying you with alternate tour, cruise, or reservation options for you to use your new credits towards.
Additionally, your travel advisor often has different phone numbers to access suppliers and other connections within the industry that we can reach out to in order to facilitate a resolution and obtain answers to questions that are not readily available. No need for you to sit on hold for 7+ hours or deal with crashing phone systems during a crisis - we alleviate that stress!
I've unfortunately seen a number of people struggling to reach the company they booked through, and in some cases, many travelers have been left with no one to speak to or anyone to help because of devious business practices and simply put, the lack of care and support for you as a client. If you have a good travel agent on your side, you can rest assure that we are doing everything we can to provide you as seamless experience as possible in a situation like this. No one should have to worry about anything but their health, communities and families at this time and if we can help ease our clients' lives right now, we will!
An important fact to bear in mind is that suppliers aren't required to change their policies if the travel can still be completed – terms and conditions are legally binding and the fact that they really are trying to do the right thing throughout this tumultuous and unprecedented time, is commendable.
We are paying very close attention to those companies treating our clients fairly and honorably, so we can move forward after life returns to normal and develop stronger professional relationships with those vendors. You can remain confident that we only work with the best in the industry - and this crisis is a good reminder of the difference in the level of support and service you can receive.
I hope I managed to answer some questions today and was able to convey a little more insight into why it might seem like the travel industry is taking a little longer than preferable to assist with your cancellations or rescheduling.
Rest assured that we are all doing everything in our power to shoulder the burden and help you so that you can spend time with your family knowing that we are diligently working to ensure that you get fair treatment and resolutions.
I began this business over a decade ago because I wanted to help people experience the world through travel and I plan to continue helping my clients - old and new - well after this is over and for many years to come.
Thank you for your support and business over the years! Together we can get through anything!
Stay safe, positive and hopeful!
*PS* For those quarantined and looking for ways to support small business at home... Please follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram and engage with our posts. Conversations are important to the algorithm behind the scenes that consider us "relevant" to be seen. That would be a huge help to us so we can continue to grow our business and hopefully find some new clients too - which will be needed as soon as we can travel again. Travel agents are paid on commission when clients travel, so it's important for us to continue to build our name and support. You're the best!!

I was going to talk about Corona Virus a little, but honestly – I don’t think I need to say too much yet. Until there is more information to give, please just wash your hands and if you’re at risk of being compromised by this virus, be extra vigilant. If you have travel booked within the next few weeks have a chat to your doctor and just continue to use common sense and sanitization practices.
And that’s it – that’s all that really needs to be said as this all continues to evolve and develop. So instead of going on about this, I would much rather talk about a joyous adventure and share a bit about my most recent travel experience – a once in a lifetime (I lie... I will definitely be going back in this lifetime) safari in Africa and visit to Zanzibar in Tanzania!
Arriving into Tanzania was surreal – I’ve traveled to a lot of places, but this was going to be a completely new experience for me and one of the longest journey's I've made thus far. I couldn’t believe it was finally happening! “Beach Vacation” isn’t usually what goes through people’s minds when they think of Africa, but it’s a vast and diverse continent where you can combine beach AND adventure – which is exactly what I got to do!
The island of Zanzibar was the first real stop in this adventure, home to Stone Town a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with unique architecture influenced by Swahili, Arab, Persian, Indian and European elements. After a day exploring, we enjoyed the sunset from the famous Rock Restaurant – a restaurant this is quite literally in the middle of the water. During low tide you can walk across the sand to the restaurant but during high tide, they paddle you over in a canoe.
After touring a many hotel properties, visiting Prison Island to see the Aldabra Giant Tortoise sanctuary, quick stop to snorkel, walking tour of Stone Town and visiting the Slave Museum in just a few days - we were off to Nairobi for adventure, safari and the elusive Big 5! We spent a night in Nairobi so we could visit a couple sanctuaries before we headed on safari the next day. Not only did I get to touch the baby elephant I adopted, but I also got to feed a hangry giraffe who thought it would be funny to nibble my finger instead – and with the exception of myself, everyone else there thought it was cute, so turns out he was right. ;)
Driving into Masai Mara National Park, we were all pumped – none of us had ever done anything like this before and there was something indescribable in the air as we headed towards camp. The safari essentially started immediately and we were beyond excited, every second someone was pointing out an elephant, a gazelle, a zebra – in the end our amazing guides had to remind us that were in for so much more and that we needed to stop stopping the car or we’d never make it to camp!
I could bore you with camp details, but I won’t except to say that there are so many different options for camps that you can please nearly anyone. From relatively basic camps to extravagant glamping areas complete with air-conditioning, private decks and swimming pools where you can watch the hippos swim about OR a herd of elephants pass you by during breakfast - this is the kind of trip that can truly be tailored to each visitor.
The next coming days was like something out of a tv show or nature documentary – I could practically hear David Attenborough narrating as we drove across the African plains, warriors with spears by our sides, as we sought out the elusive Big 5. (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo).
One morning we enjoyed an incredible hot air balloon ride over the plains to see a very different viewpoint of the animals – and I cannot recommend this enough. We saw hippos playing in water as the sun rose, baboons hopping across the river from rock to rock, gazelles leaping across fields from a bird's eye view and giraffes napping. We were low enough to see every detail perfectly!
We also had many breakfasts in the middle of the wilderness, and a sundowner happy hour event where we truly felt connected to nature. On our last night, we toasted to new places, friends, and watched an incredible storm rolling in as we danced and listened to music until the "rains of Africa" started and forced us to head back to camp. Do you hear those lyrics in your head when you read that phrase too?! BTW... I don’t have a future career in African dance, so please continue to support this travel advisor thing I have going on. ;)
As we neared the end of this unforgettable two weeks, it’s impossible to try to explain the feeling of driving under the African sun with a pack of lion cubs and their mums strolling idly around your car, with lions taking naps so close you could almost pat their manes as they lift their head and lazily eye you before deciding that napping is far more appealing than eating you and go back to sleep, and even the warthogs running scared as they heard our truck were so funny to see in person (Pumbaa, from the lion king, as we called them every time we saw them - so ugly they are cute).
The beautiful thing is that there are so many different ways to curate this experience - you could combine it with trekking Mt. Kilimanjaro (even just a little hike if you're not ready for the full trekk), or throw Uganda into the mix and channel your inner Jane Goodall with a gorilla trek. You can select a camp hidden in the brush or stay right on the front lines and watch the great migration crossing the Masai river, observing the crocodiles lying in wait for their prey to saunter across.
This is probably one of the longest posts I’ve ever written, but it’s so hard to encapsulate everything I experienced via one short article - so if you’ve read to this point, I appreciate you taking the time to share a little of my journey with you. I also think that if you’ve read this far then you should give me a call or schedule an appointment so that we can chat about how to make your African dreams come true! I quickly found out this is not something you should wait for as a bucketlist trip - as tomorrow is never promised and you need to see this in person!

Valentine’s Day might be behind us now, but love will keep flowing as February is one of our biggest months to plan group travel.
My two favorite things in the world are travel and love – those two passions are what led me to having my own destination wedding because I couldn’t imagine anything more beautiful than combining travel and love.
After that, I was hooked and Destinations HD was born so I could live my life helping other people enhance their love with travel and embrace their travel with love. It makes me so happy to see my clients explore the world with the people they love – be it romantic love, family love or friend love.
Some of my clients’ favorite trips have been the group vacations where they share their experiences with the people they love, such as destination weddings (which for obvious reasons hold a very special place in my heart!), group anniversary trips, family reunions/getaways, and friends just traveling together for a fun getaway.
Now trust me, there is a TON to take into consideration when booking group travel of any kind, but I just wanted to highlight a few of the great ways that you can combine your love of travel with your loved ones to really create meaningful memories and moments in the busy lives we all seem to lead these days...
- There is an unspoken bond created with the people that you travel with -
1. Destination Wedding
Of COURSE this is the first one on my list! Weddings are amazing! Everyone is happy, new families and friend groups are joining together, people are literally uniting their lives and we all get to be a part of it! But instead of having to go to three different venues for one wedding, figure out if you need to Uber or take a shuttle there and back, if you need cash, what gift to get and so on, with a destination wedding you get to have a vacation with some of your favorite people AND some of their favorite people! It’s pretty much win-win – and it’s even better if you’re the happy couple! Less stress, less fuss, pictures to die for, and knowing that your guests are going to remember your wedding with as much happiness as you do! Aw, tear!
2. Anniversary Reunions
I’m seeing this trend more often now – because it just. Makes. Sense. You all had an amazing time together 5, 10, 20 years ago – why not repeat it?? The beauty of group vacations lies in the fact that unlike a one day (or evening!) event, where everybody has to try to meet people, spend quality time with so many different people, catch up with others, in addition to the normal human daily requirements such as, breathe, eat, relax and rest, it just doesn’t leave a lot of TIME – group vacations allow for so much more time to be alone with a select loved one or two, and also with the whole group over multiple days, so it’s not surprising that after a group has done one trip together - they tend to make a tradition of it. Didn’t have a destination wedding? Be a trendsetter and start the next anniversary group vacay yourself!
3. Family Getaways
Ok, I know what you’re thinking – half the time we want to bang our heads against a wall at Thanksgiving, so why on earth would we want to go away for MULTIPLE days at a time with our loving – but sometimes crazy – family? Hear me out. You love your family obviously and they love you – that’s why we trek halfway across the country during snowstorms to see each other. So why not make it easier? Why not travel together and EVERYONE can take a load off to enjoy a well deserved break. You’d be surprised how much happier and relaxed everyone is when no one has been cooking and cleaning for a week straight or has a mountain of dishes to do after a big family meal together! It's time to create new memories together and/or traditions.
4. Vow Renewals
A vow renewal is not only the perfect way to re-commit to your love to one another in front of new friends and family, but it’s also a perfect reason to have a second mini-wedding (or not so mini! 😉) Vow renewals are also the perfect way to celebrate your marriage like newlyweds again and reconnect – or you can even make it into a “Group Honeymoon” – a trend that is increasing in popularity every year!
While it can seem daunting to think about how to corral your loved ones so you can all get away at the same time, with planning and know-how, it can be a smooth and stress-free experience. Luckily, you know a travel advisor who can help with all the details and keep everyone organized, so reach out and we can start planning a group travel experience that you'll remember forever!

I've been in the Romance Travel industry for over a decade and the one thing that I've found over the years is that couples always hold the memories of traveling together in a special place in their hearts.
There is something so special about whisking yourselves away together, going through the trials of travel and the true voyage of discovery - whether it be a new destination, new way of traveling or the discovery of each other away from everyday life together.
With that in mind, and with Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to share some of the best Romance Travel Trends for 2020-2021...
- Love is the Food of Life, Travel is the Dessert -
1. Transformative Train Travel
With the emphasis on climate change taking a world-wide stage in recent years, train travel is on the rise all over the globe. This lower impact way of traversing new terrains is a call to the past when train travel was decadent, romantic, and the journey truly was a part of the adventure itself.
Booking a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer, stopping in small quaint Canadian towns and rolling through the lush countryscapes of the Rockies in a glass-top locomotive while you rest your head on your partners shoulder and point out the magnificent wildlife as you sip a glass of wine with your meal before alighting to a chateau in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, is a sure-fire recipe for love and romance.
Looking over the stunning vista of Lake Louise from your room while you settle in for the night is something that will feel straight out of a fairy tale!
2. Boutique Yacht Cruising
Yet another lower impact way of traveling and something that will elevate your experience, is embarking on a boutique yacht cruise.
Think no more than 30-60 suites onboard the whole yacht, 5 star service and surroundings as you explore the hidden ports and towns of areas such as Croatia that only a small vessel can get to.
You'll take days off your travel time to these backroads destinations then if you tried to fly into a larger airport and take a car, bus and/or trains to get to these charming towns. You'll be pampered and entertained each evening as you head to your next port. This is no standard cruise ship though - envision luxurious and spacious suites, watersports straight off the yacht and sunsets in a different magical city while you toast in some of the most historic towns in the world.
3. Tour Da World
Want the magic of being able to explore a country but get seasick, hate flying, or don't feel like dragging all your luggage through train stations every other day? Take a small group tour - or a private one! - and you'll have time to concentrate on each other and where you are, instead of how you get there.
Small tours can get you to areas that you wouldn't be able to on your own or don't have the time to see with your limited vacation time. Plus you are set you up with skip-the-line access to the sites you might want to explore, have your luggage taken care of for you, VIP accommodations, and may be customized to what you and your partner are looking for.
There are tours from Galapagos to the backroads of Montenegro, Morocco, the temples of India or the wonders of Australia and New Zealand. They are are built around you and what you want to do and experience on YOUR journey together.
4. There's a Reason They're Called "The Idyllic Islands"
If you haven't heard of them, you should add them on your romance "must-do" list. These are the places dreams are made of, the destinations that you won't believe are real even when you're there. These islands are full of culture, warmth, beauty, and some of the most outstanding wildlife and marine life in the world.
Think Fiji, think Tahiti - where history, culture and love abound - and you will find the epitome of romance and luxury.
Granted, you all probably know by now that Tahiti is one of my favorite places on earth, and it's for a lot of good reasons! I'm one of the very few Tahiti certified specialists in my area and every time I visit, I'm filled with passion from the beauty and welcoming affection the second I land in this sacred destination.
Days can be spent paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming off of the deck of your over-the-water villa as you explore the life underneath the surface in some of the clearest of waters you will ever see. Nights can be enjoyed with romantic dinners by fire pits as musician's play live music and you watch the sunset with champagne in hand. Take in a local show or hike to plantations breathing in vanilla scented air - you can make your stay as active or as secluded as you desire.
While, it might be a little late to get away next week, it is the perfect time to start planning for next year, or for an upcoming honeymoon or anniversary - or better yet, plan a romance vacay just for the fun of it! What a perfect gift to each other this Valentine's Day - planning a romantic getaway to look forward to as a couple.
It's never the wrong time for escaping together and exploring each other while you explore the world! New and meaningful experiences together has been connected to a healthy, long and loving relationship, so make sure you don't let the daily grind get in your way and find new things or destinations to go explore together!

The last decade was an eye-opener when it came to the real problem that plastic is having on our environment. We saw countries and citizens around the world taking action to cut down on plastic use.
But what about when you travel? Trial size toiletries, plastic cups at hotels, ziplock bags for TSA screening – the list goes on and on. Some countries (and even some local US states) have banned the use of plastics, so be sure to check your destination before getting on that jet plane.
So what can we as travelers do to minimize our impact on the beautiful destinations we visit and reduce plastic waste?
- Top 5 Ways You Can Help When Vacationing -
Luckily – it’s actually pretty easy! When the whole world jumps on board with solutions, we can implement small changes to reduce our plastic waste AND end up saving money and the planet in the long run!
These are only a few of the ways that you can help minimize your use of plastic when traveling and keep these wonderful destinations beautiful for years to come – as well as, save some money to put towards your next trip!

Well, this newsletter was supposed to be about my recent trip to a bucket list dream of mine – specifically Exuma, in the Bahamas.
If you don’t know about the famous swimming pigs of the Bahamas, give me a call and I can fill you in! It’s been a personal dream of mine to swim with the pigs in the crystal-clear waters, and this year I finally booked the trip!
As the departure date got closer, I got more and more excited – I was packed and ready to go a week before we had to leave, the house was clean, and I was tying up loose ends at work – next stop, Bahamas!
Until three days before I had to leave...
- Vitamin Sea is not an effective treatment for pneumonia -
It started with a scratchy throat and sniffle here and there, but by the next day I knew I had to go to the doctor before it got worse. I was determined to fight what I thought was just a cold before my trip, but little did I know I would be diagnosed with pneumonia. I still had a couple of days before we left though, so I took my antibiotics, went home to rest and planned to use my sheer strength of will to kick the pneumonia in two days. I got this!
Unfortunately, I was wrong, and the worst was yet to come, which is why instead of sharing my experiences and pictures from Exuma with you, I’m telling you about how life just happens sometimes - whether we think it will or not.
As upset as I was about having to cancel my trip, it would have been a million times worse if I hadn’t bought travel insurance. Luckily, I was able to get fully reimbursed for the vacation and I decided to put that money towards a different bucket list item of mine – an African Safari! (You’ll have to wait until March to hear more about that though!!) I will get another chance to get to Exuma and will try again when the timing is right.
I know it’s tempting to “wing it” when it comes to travel insurance, but the amount of things that can go wrong when you’re leaving your home are significant, and many of the instances that can occur are completely out of your control - which is what insurance is all about - unexpected situations.
Additionally, there seems to be a misconception that travel insurance is solely for if you need to cancel your trip, or that's it's a gimmick for the suppliers to make more money, but that is not the case at all.
Let's take a look at the 4 major protections that travel insurance offers:
As you can see, travel insurance can be beneficial for a number of reasons and simply put, should just be built into the cost of anyone’s getaway. You wouldn’t drive without car insurance or leave your prized possessions un-insured, so give yourself and the trip investment the same kind of protection.
No one ever intends or wants to cancel a fun and exciting trip - especially when traveling for a special celebration! I never thought I'd cancel my bucketlist trip, but coming down with pneumonia sure created a new plan for me :)
With a great travel agent and travel insurance, you’re setting yourself up for vacation success while minimizing stress! Book your consultation or call (913) 244-9195 today if you’d like to see if you’re eligible to add insurance to your already booked trip OR if you’d like to chat about creating a new vacation experience!
I can't believe this year is almost over! I'm squeezing in one last trip for the year, and heading to Exuma with the hubby tomorrow. I can't wait to share my adventure around this charming Bahamas island - be sure to follow my Facebook or Instagram pages to learn about all the fascinating experiences you can enjoy on this beautiful island.
If you are struggling with those harder to buy for people on your holiday list - I have the perfect alternative you might consider as a gift this year that they will remember for a lifetime.
Travel Is Way Better Than Stuff!
Travel is so memorable and gives pleasure that simply can’t be created from commercial goods. The truth is most people don’t remember gifts that were given to them for any given occasion, regardless of how much money you spent on it. But, ask them about trips they've been on, and they will likely be able to tell you with unbelievable accuracy the details of that trip!
Stuff comes and goes, but memories are there forever. Traveling provides us stories to tell, and inspires new dreams within us. Travel helps us to share experiences in a way objects cannot.
Travel Yields Deeper Bonds!
Consider for a moment what happens when you give the gift of an object. You hand it to the recipient. They may or may not light up with joy in the moment, but then it’s over. You have nothing further to discuss other than a comment if they wear it or use it from time to time.
Now consider what happens when you go on a trip... You can plan it together. You can visit the various sites together. You share the views, the culture, the food, etc... You’re experiencing the trip together. Then, when you get back you have memories to call upon together. It’s not a one-sided experience anymore. It’s something you can truly bond over for a lifetime.
As we travel and interact with new things, we are mentally stimulated. We ask more questions. We feel more engaged. We feel present in the moment, and more excited to be with those we’re experiencing the trip with.
Now, I know what you may be thinking - what if you give the gift of travel to someone, and you’re not going on the trip with them? You’ll still enjoy many benefits that you wouldn’t get to have with gifts of objects. For example:

I just returned from a personal vacation with my husband in Mexico. During our trip, we overheard some couples discussing what they should be tipping at dinner. This is a common question that many travelers have, so thought it would be a good topic to chat about today. I will cover when, how, and how much to tip for your next resort vacation.
Note: the information in this post is based on current trends and practices. For superior service, you might consider increasing the gratuity based on your experience. This is also based on US Dollars, so for those countries that may not prefer US currency, just calculate the exchange rate in relation to the local currency.
First and foremost is the importance of bringing more small bills with you on the trip. This will allow you the freedom to adjust the gratuity when needed. If you’re paying by credit card for a service such as a massage, you can usually add the tip to your bill. However, it's nicer to provide cash directly to your service provider.
When and How Much to Tip at Most Resorts:
Some all-inclusive resorts include the gratuity as part of your package cost or resort fee. You will want to check with your travel agent to confirm if this is the case and if extra tipping may be appropriate. In most cases, an extra tip would be most appreciated and welcomed. However, there are some resorts that truly will not allow you to tip their staff anything extra no matter how much you feel they deserve it. In all cases, you will always still tip for spa and salon services, as well as, shuttles to and from the airport, as those services do not fall under the "tipping included" pricing.

I'm currently planning a reunion getaway with the girls I met in Fiji this year. We became fast friends and traveling without them isn't quite the same now. Do you have those friends that make everything better together?
With life taking people all over the world for work and family, it's hard to stay in touch as much as you use to with your pals. Meeting up for trips is a great way to reconnect, as well as, experience new things and create unforgettable memories together!
As we start to plan our reunion vacation, it got me thinking about how women-only vacations have become increasingly popular. Call it self-care, call it a girl’s getaway - in fact, call it whatever you want because the reason they are trending right now is that they are so much fun. With that in mind, I wanted to share my number one tip for making the most out of a girl’s only vacation (which of course can be modified to fit a guy's interest or any group you want to travel with based on what you all enjoy doing). My best advice is start with a stay at an all-inclusive resort and here's why...
Why All-Inclusive is a Good Bet for Girl's Trip
The great thing about staying at an all-inclusive resort is that they often provide nonstop entertainment, access to a spa, usually a golf course nearby, and they always include meals and drinks.
It's also a great way for friends on different budgets to be on the same level that week. When you opt for an all-inclusive resort, you don’t have to worry about keeping your costs in check while having all that fun since nearly everything you want is included!
It’s important to note that some of the amenities may not be included in your all-inclusive resort stay, and some resorts may have more restrictions, extra fees or requirements, so it's important to know which resort brand would best fit your group's expectations. Resort vacations usually offer a significant bang for your travel buck.
Here are some ideas to stretch the fun even further without breaking the bank:
